BACKGROUND: Low back pain associated with lumbar disc herniation is common in the general population, with evident repercussion in quality of life and a significant economic burden. Patients refractory to conservative treatment seek additional treatment and minimally invasive interventions were proposed as valid options. Ozone therapy has been suggested as an alternative due to its potential analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. OBJECTIVE: This systematic review aims to investigate the effectiveness and safety of ozone therapy for low back pain in patients with lumbar disc herniation...

INTRODUCTION: Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an condition rarely reported in children. Additionally, IgG4-RD may rarely mimic vasculitis in adults and may infrequently present with uveitis. In our service, 6,198 patients were followed-up and only one (0.0001%) of them had IgG4-RD. To our knowledge, the present IgG4-RD case was the first mimicking childhood polyarteritis nodosa (c-PAN) with recurrent uveitis and kidney tumor. CASE REPORT: We describe herein a 7-year-old boy that presented intermittent fever...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a major public health problem. Because Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF) seems to have an important role in immune response to HCV infection, suppression by TNFi (TNF inhibitors) may pose a potential worsening of chronic HCV infection. We report our experience with 3 cases of patients with chronic HCV infection and advanced liver disease, with different Rheumatic diseases, treated with a TNFi, etanercept (ETN), for a period ranging from 4 months to 4 years without hepatitis C treatment and, in two of them, concomitant therapy with direct-acting antiviral agents (DAA) and afterwards...

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is characterized by congenital skeletal anomalies and progressive heterotopic ossification. We present a 4 year old male patient who underwent unnecessary harmful multiple biopsies before the diagnosis of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is made. Though rare, diagnosis of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva should be considered whenever characteristic radiographic features of multifocal heterotopic bone formation is seen along with the valgus deformities of the big toes...

A 39-year-old female with systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) presented with fever, headaches and rash and was treated with empiric antibiotics for a presumable meningitis. However, cerebrospinal fluid turned out to be sterile and fever persisted with onset of hyporeflexive paraparesis with sensory loss below D10. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated intradural-extramedullary hematoma (related to traumatic lumbar puncture), which was successfully drained. Subsequent surgical scar infection occurred and was treated accordingly...

Epithelioid sarcoma is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm characterized by aggregates of epithelioid cells. Intra-articular occurrence is exceedingly rare with only few reports described in the literature. A 22 year-old man presented a progressive mechanical knee pain. Initially, the investigation revealed a non-infectious unspecific synovitis. The patient gradually presented increasing knee enlargement and functional impairment. Intra-articular nodular proliferation with bone invasion was later observed on magnetic resonance imaging reevaluation...

Devic's disease or neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an autoimmune, inflammatory and demyelinating pathology of the central nervous system that affects the optic nerve and the spinal cord. Diagnosis confirmed by imaging, magnetic resonance (MR) and the presence of the anti-aquaporin 4 antibody (anti-AQP4). We describe two cases of patients with mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) and Devic's disease, who had anti-AQP4 positive and areas with neuroaxis MR abnormalities, showing this rare association.

AIMS: The objective of this study was to perform the Portuguese transcultural adaptation of the original Brazilian version of the Oral Health Impact Profile-14 (OHIP-14) while evaluating the association between hyposalivation and quality of life in a Sjögren´s Syndrome population. METHODS: The original Brazilian version of the Oral Health Impact Profile-14 was culturally adapted following the guidelines for cross-cultural adaptation of health-related quality of life measures...

BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that has a major impact on patients´ quality of life. The Rheumatoid Arthritis Quality of Life (RAQoL) questionnaire is a patient-reported outcome measure, specific to RA. The aim of this study was to translate and perform the cross-cultural adaptation of the RAQoL into Portuguese. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The dual panel methodology was used to translate the UK RAQoL into Portuguese. This involved conducting a bilingual panel (providing the initial translation into Portuguese) followed by a lay panel (where items are assessed for comprehension and acceptability)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify potential key candidate genes and uncover their potential mechanisms in rheumatoid arthritis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The gene expression profiles of GSE12021, GSE55457, GSE55584 and GSE55235 were downloaded from the gene expression omnibus database, including 45 rheumatoid arthritis and 29 normal samples. The differentially expressed genes between the two types of samples were identified with the Linear Models for Microarray Analysis package using R language...

OBJECTIVE: To translate and culturally adapt the Oxford Shoulder Score (OSS) to the European Portuguese language, and to test its reliability (internal consistency, reproducibility and measurement error) and validity (construct validity). METHODS: The OSS Portuguese version was obtained through translations, back-translations, consensus panels, clinical review and cognitive pre-test. Portuguese OSS, Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) questionnaires, and the visual analogue scales of pain at rest [VAS rest] and during movement [VAS movement] were applied to 111 subjects with shoulder pain (degenerative or inflammatory disorders) and recommended for physical therapy...

OBJECTIVES: Our main objective was to evaluate the percentage of patients under anti-osteoporotic treatment (OT) at the time of hip fracture (HF) and one and four years after the HF event. We compared these results with the percentage of patients who should be under treatment at all three stages, according to the recently published Portuguese cost-effectiveness recommendations (PCER) for OT. Data regarding occurrence of new fragility fractures and mortality were also determined, one and four years after the HF event...

The GO-DACT is an investigator-initiated, national, multicentric randomized placebo-controlled double-blinded trial, that assesses dactylitis as primary endpoint. Psoriatic arthritis patients naïve to methotrexate and biologic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, with at least one active dactylitis, were assigned to golimumab in combination with methotrexate or placebo in combination with methotrexate, for 24 weeks. Both clinical (dactylitis severity score and the Leeds dactylitis index) and imaging (high resolution magnetic resonance imaging), among others, were assessed as outcomes...
